Has the night tube transformed your weekends? We’re guessing probably not – yet. But that could change with the arrival of the nocturnal Northern Line this month.
So inside this, our 40th print issue, we celebrate by selecting twelve of London’s more interesting bars all handily placed by a Northern Line stop near you.
But late night boozing isn’t the sole focus this month. We speak to Gavin Fernback, owner of well-regarded West Kentish Town cafe Fields Beneath, about his new social enterprise in King’s Cross; and update you on our very popular campaign to introduce a High Line park along a disused stretch of Overground track.
Then there’s the fascinating tale of a Somali asylum-seeker, who ended up spending 20 years living off Queen’s Crescent, before returning to Somalia as mayor of Mogadishu.
And have you dared venture deep below South Kentish Town’s former tube station to try Mission Breakout? We sent fledgling stand-up comedian Brendan Hodrien with a gang of mates to report back.
Oh, and don’t miss our run-down of some of the best new pizza places (and a round-up of other good neighbourhood Italians).
